These are true stories on the most cute sirian hamster girls who came out of the blue and turned my life upside down. While I had always been dreaming of having a kitten, one day I saw Lilly in a pet store and couldn't take my eyes of her. So I took her home. And, yes, you may say that I named and got friendly with a cat food but to me sirian hamsters are just perfect. Even if they are half blind like Kropeczka or left behind like Nutka. Welcome to the Fluffy Toughie world!
Very cheerful, colourful course. This rainbow-like, not gruelling dish is ideal to start with especially for anyone who hasn't been familiar with cooking so far. The food is sweet and very juicy, ideal as a salad or even as a healthy dessert.
1 red pepper
1 green pepper
1 yellow pepper 1 orange pepper
1 kitchen knife 1 chopping board 4 small bowls 1 medium round plate
Wash all four peppers thoroughly. Than give them a wipe or let them dry. Choose the one that has the nicest stem (let's say: the orange pepper) and cut it crosswise in half. See that those two pieces of pepper you've just received have tiny seeds inside. Remove them all (running water helps alot) along with the core and pale fibers (you may need to use your knife again). Having this done, put the half with the stem aside (it's gonna be our 'candle'). The other half of orange pepper needs chopping. You can achieve this by slicing it along the fibers and than cutting the slices fine into small pieces. (Watch out, it's getting juicy!) Once you've finished, put those pieces of pepper into a bowl. Now, we've got three more peppers to chop. The difference is that this time the stems are going to waste and need to be removed first. You have to cut them off but since it's pepper you do it in this special way: stub the knife into pepper's pulp about 2 cm away from the stem and cut around it till it fells off along with the core (throw it away, we don't need it). That's it. The hardest job is done. Wash out the tiny seeds from the inside. Than the procedure is similar to the orange pepper case: we need the three other peppers chopped so you know now what to do. (Remember to use seperate bowls for different pepper colours.) At some point you should finish with a half of pepper with a stem and four bowls filled with colourful pepper. Now, here comes the best part. Take the stemed half of pepper and put it into the center of the plate. Than use your pepper fine pieces to create this round, rainbow pattern around it. See how simple it is? Enjoy! :-)
LILLY'S REVIEW: NOW, THAT'S ONE RICH, FINE DISH INDEED!
It's really up to you what colours of pepper you choose and use. The stem half can be orange but also green, or red, or yellow as well. It all depends on your imagination. Be creative and enjoy experimenting with colours. Good luck! :-)
